Nigeria Customs Service Salary Structure - Updates 2023/2024:

The Nigerian Customs Service is a big part of Nigerian life, especially if you are involved in importing or exporting goods.
But did you know it does more than that?

The NCS has many roles which makes it an exciting workplace. In this article, you’ll learn all about the NCS, its background, duties, and how much they pay their workers.

In 1922, it was called the Department of Customs and Excise. By the end of 1945 divided into two parts under the leadership of Mr. Nicol, a British man. These were the Maritime and Preventive Services. The Maritime team collected import duties, while the Preventive team was responsible for stopping smuggling.

The Technical and Preventive Services were combined into one service. This new structure led to the creation of several directorates or departments within the service:

    • Customs Tariff and Trade.
    • Customs Enforcement Directorate.
    • Customs Investigation Directorate.
    • Customs Inspection Directorate.
    • Customs Economic Relations, Research, and Planning Directorate.

Today, the NCS includes the following departments:

    • Finance, Administration, and Technical Services.
    • Tarrif and Trade.
    • Excise and Industrial Incentives.
    • Enforcement and Drugs.
    • Economic Relating Research and Planning.
    • Investigation and Inspection.
